Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The key thing about CERN was that the people who work there are spread across the planet a lot of the time: HTML - and more importantly HTTP - were designed to solve exactly the problem of sharing information with a widely dispersed geographical community all of whom would be publishing data. It followed on from gopher in some pretty obvious ways but was much less structured, which is its main beauty.
